Colorful House

Colorful House - student project

I learned a lot of great ideas about urban sketching. The best one had to be drawing a building straight on rather than worrying about perspective. This made it much easier to focus on the other techniques in the class.

I was so engrossed in doing this project I forgot to take a minute to scan my sketch and inked drawing - next time I'll remember :) Some of the lines got a bit wonky but I'll keep practicing and they'll get better.

I don't think I've seen splattering done in urban sketches before and I think it adds a nice touch to the piece (plus it's fun to do!). 

Thanks for a great class Julia!
